Last night we posted news of Target’s #sharetheforce REDcard promotion and in support of that effort, we are giving away one of the POP! Red Stormtroopers! Simply comment on this post with what POP! figure you’d like to see next in the line and we’ll pick a winner tomorrow (No bonus points for asking for Yak Face). U.S. residents only.
Once again, thanks to Target and Funko for making this available to us to giveaway.
According to Target’s page for their exclusive 6″ Black Series Luke Skwalker (Jedi Master) on Ahch-To Island deluxe figure, it looks like it now has an availability of December 1 (originally November IIRC).
Thanks to AdamBomb for the alert.
Target, in partnership with Funko, is sending out to select accounts a couple of their upcoming exclusive POP! Red Classic Stormtroopers as part of their REDcard #sharetheforce campaign. The POP!s are scheduled to hit stores on October 1. Click on through to check out a few quick images.

On my morning travels today, I managed to stumble upon a shelf of the upcoming Target Exclusive 6″ Black Series First Order Stormtrooper Executioners. Don’t overpay on eBay, these guys will be plentiful, eventually.
A few weeks back, Jedi Temple Archives leaked an image and listing for a 6″ Black Series Deluxe Luke Skywalker with Ahch-To Island base coming exclusively to Target (DPCI and price can be found here). We now have intel regarding the (obvious) companion piece for Luke and it will be available at different retail destination later this year. Budget an extra $5 on top of Target’s deluxe figure price.
Joshua O. reports finding the Exclusive 6″ Black Series First Order Stormtrooper Executioner at his Target in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. Once again, sale was prohibited at checkout.
The upcoming newpaper insert for Target has made its way online and it confirms rumors and speculation that select stores will be opening at 12:01 am September 1. A list of participating stores will be available soon at www.Target.com/starwars. Also returning for Force Friday are discount coupons, this time instead of an instant discount, they redeemable for gift cards when thresholds of $50 or $100 are met.
UPDATE: Target has updated their site. Click find stores on to see if a store near you is open (12:01-2am) for Force Friday II.
Bay area resident and Instagram user rmdcollctve reports finding new products for The Last Jedi as well the Black Series Centerpiece Darth Vader on shelf. One more this to add to your potential shopping list for Force Friday.
Rebelscum has posted the first look at the Target Exclusive (Tesco in the UK) 12″ Hero Series 6pk set for release on Force Friday. We originally posted details for this set in our DPCIs Decoded article last week. Head on over for a closer look.
Reader Johnathon F. writes in with news that he found Rey (Jedi Training) and Finn (Resistance Fighter) figures at a Target in California. Look for these two figures and more on shelves between now and the official release date on September 1.
As we speculated a couple weeks ago, there is a version of the BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset that includes the Force Link bracelet. We’ve seen the version without the bracelet leaked via Amazon.es but now you can see the second version in alternate packaging has leaked out and is on-shelf at Target via an Instagram post from ToyThugShow (swipe left on the Instagram image to see it.)
Thanks to @Jord3217 on Twitter for the heads-up.
Collectors concerned about old 6″ product clogging pegs at Target can breathe easy as we have news that a new DPCI has been issued for the 6″ Black Series assortment especially for the Force Friday launch of The Last Jedi products.
SW E8 Black Series 6″ Assortment: 087-06-1922
We have another decoded Target DPCI to share today and it was the last one on our original list (posted here). The others were revealed here yesterday. This item is a “Star Wars Galaxy” Multipack that includes one figure from each of the serialized episodes (I-VIII). There are probably some good ol’ evergreen characters that will probably be included in here like Vader and Luke, but who do you think they chose to represent The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi?
The DPCI is 087-06-8398, (which is now active on Brickseek) retail price is $39.99 and has an estimated October 1 release date.
Leave a comment on whom you’d like to see. And yes, they are all basic (5 POA) figures.
We have received additional details, confirmations and some new reveals for a list of Target DPCIs that we shared back on July 2 (you can see the original article here). Click on through for the new info.

Recently, our friends at Jeditemplearchives shared news of Target’s plan to merchandise clearance Star Wars items in their very own planogram section.
While traveling today, I came across a Target store that had just reset their clearance Star Wars items following these corporate guidelines (this store also had an endcap filled with at least 30 more 5poa figures from TFA and Rogue One and a ton of Ezra speederbikes).
What kind of clearance selection are you all seeing at your local Targets? How low do these products need to go for customers to put them in their carts? Share your thoughts after the jump!
